New 70-200/2.8L IS USM II

Canon this morning announced a new 70-200/2.8L IS II.

We have all been expecting this lens for some time and Canon has finally delivered. It focuses closer, focuses faster, has better optics, and features Canon's "next generation Optical Image Stabilization" 4 full stops of anti shake goodness. And thank the LORD it still uses the 77mm filter we have all collected so very many of.

The lens is set to ship in April of this year; but I have not been able to find a price yet (I assume it to be around $2.5k)

I have two other 70-200's so I guess this means I will have to sell mine and buy this new one soon :)
That means if you want my recently (December 2009) cleaned/tuned 70-200/2.8L IS or my 70-200/4.0L let me know.
